Pickford Hall was named in honor of former Board of Trustees member C.J
Pickford. The building was the original classroom building and would later contain
the "Old Pie Shop,"
the first student "hangout" on campus. The first classes held on
Virginia Union''s Lombardy Street campus were taught in the partially completed
Pickford Hall on October 4, 1899. Classes were held in the midst of continued
construction and noise. Desks were brought from Richmond Seminary to be used in
the assembly room while the lecture hall was being completed.

Pickford Hall is one of nine buildings commissioned by the American Baptist
Home Mission Society and designed by New York architect John Hopper Coxhead in
1899. The buildings were all erected in locally hewn gray granite and fashioned in a
uniform and picturesque architectural style known as Romanesque. Five of the nine
buildings remain in use on the campus today.
